Indian cricket team’s bowling coach, B. Arun is searching for a compelling left-arm pacer who will be enable to cover all bases of the team. As Zaheer Khan has left, team India is still in search for a capable left-arm speedster.

While Ashish Nehra has done a commendable job in the shortest format for quite some time, Jaydev Unadkat is still lacking pace.

Barinder Sran faded away rather quickly and Aniket Chaudhary is still not a finished product.

“I have just come into this role so definitely we will be speaking to the coaches of the A-team. I guess there needs to be information that needs to be shared for us to make best use of the bowlers coming in. We have wrist spinners like Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. So, if we can get even one good left-arm fast bowler, it will go well for the side,” Arun stated.

He has insisted that R. Ashwin, despite playing only 15 ODI matches since the 2015 World Cup, is very much in the scheme of things.

When asked if Ashwin would make it in the 2019 World Cup, Arun said, “This question should be asked to the selectors, but as the bowling coach I think he is an extremely talented bowler. Even if you look at his last ODI which he played in West Indies, he got three for 28.”

“He (Ashwin) is very skilful. I don’t want to look at what has happened so far but he is definitely part of the ODI team. We would also like to give a lot of opportunities to other bowlers as well (hence the rotation)”

“If you look at the bowling unit as a whole, there has been tremendous improvement since the last couple of years. But looking ahead to the 2019 World Cup, we will need to have back up options for every bowler that we have.” –PTI
